Everyone knows the story of the girl from widow hills...

When Arden Maynor was six years old, she was swept away in a terrifying storm and went missing for days. Against all odds, she was found alive, clinging to a storm drain. Fame followed, and so did fans, creeps and stalkers. As soon as she was old enough, Arden changed her name and left Widow Hills behind.

Twenty years later, Olivia, as she is now known, is plagued by night terrors. She often finds herself out of bed in the middle of the night, sometimes streets away from her home. Then one evening she jolts awake in her yard, with the corpse of a man at her feet.

The girl from Widow Hills is about to become the centre of the story, once again...

A little slow for me...

“The Girl from Widow Hills” is Megan Miranda’s latest novel and is a slow burn mystery thriller.
Having read this author’s previous books “The Last House Guest” and “The Perfect Stranger” and only just enjoying them, I was bit dubious about reading this her latest book.
It wasn’t bad but it wasn’t good. A very simple and quite predictable storyline that was particularly slow and had (for me) a silly denouement.
The main protagonist Olivia is very dull and all the cast were sadly uninteresting and lacked character. I also felt there was some unanswered matters or unfinished business with a few people too.
The writing was professional though and flowed easily and I totally loved the way transcripts and journalists reports were interspersed between the chapters, giving you a ‘real-time’ feel of when Arden went missing twenty years ago and this kept me going through the story.
Overall a ‘meh’ book but that is just my opinion, I’m sure “The Girl from Widow Hills” will be enjoyed by many a reader and I will read more by this author again.

Bored by the sample

Don’t even bother getting past the sample. No excitement and strange writing style that makes it difficult to get into and follow the story: Premise has good potential but it has far from reached it
